With it's straight shaft, the FS 55 is more powerful than any of Stihl's curved shaft strimmers. It can be used with a comfortable but small loop handle (FS 55 R) for easy use even in limited space, or a bike handle is also availabe (FS 55). This is more comfortable to use for longer periods of time and simply allows the user to 'sweep' with the strimmer. It is also advised to have the bike handle option if you are going to be using the machine with a blade on as it is more easy to control any kick-back from hitting obstacles. The strimmer head that comes with this machine is the AutoCut C 25-2 which comes loaded with 2.4mm (orange) round line but is capable of taking square line and 3mm (yellow) line as well. So if you need to do some tougher work, the C 25-2 head enables you to do this with ease. This item is sold ready made up with fuel, and will be handed over by a member of our knowledgeable sales team. It is available for collection only, in accordance with Stihl's Dealer policy. We supply spares for all Stihl strimmers and brushcutters.
